DIBRUGARH: In yet another shocking incident a local resident of Moran in Dibrugarh allegedly raped before killing a five year old girl three days back.
The entire incident came to light only on Friday after police and villagers in Tiloi Nagar recovered the body from a waterbody. The accused is on the run.
Talking to www.assamtimes.org, local residents said the youth who is on the run took the minor girl on his bicycle three days back. Since then she has been remaining traceless. The accused, who is a neighbour, is also on the run.
Many local organizations and individuals blocked the National Highway No 37 demanding immediate arrest and capital punishment of the perpetrator.
The police team probing the case has been waiting for the post mortem report to confirm the nature of the murder. “Only the post mortem report will ascertain whether it was a rape case or not. But she was killed,” said a senior police officer.
